Colorado Health Foundation Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Louisiana Abortion Law
Today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision is a win for health and health equity, and for millions of Americans who need access to reproductive health services. Restrictions to reproductive health care and family planning services create unnecessary barriers to health – especially for communities of color, people living on low income and those who live in hard-to-reach rural and urban areas.
Access to affordable and high-quality reproductive health care, contraception and family planning services empowers individuals and couples to make informed decisions on when, how and if to start a family. It opens up opportunities for Coloradans to continue their education, further their careers and do more of what they and their families need to live healthy lives.
At The Colorado Health Foundation, we believe that reproductive health is a human right. Through our work, we will continue to ensure all Coloradans can access the care they need, when they need it.
